The reason I gave it a 5 was that my daughter is very artistic and she absolutely loves it. You can there has been a lot of thought put into these kits. They're very age appropriate, the kids need very little adult supervision while doing it, the direction are very well written, the kids still play/use them after they have accomplished them, and they look forward to receiving them in the mail every month.

My 16 year old daughter loved that it was a more challenging activity with a useful, age-appropriate end product.
